Double buffers again

In fullscreen mode by checking the surface flags I can only create a double
buffer in 640x480 in all bit depths. I have 4 megs of video ram so shouldn’t I
be able to fit a 800x600x24 double buffer in memory?

Also I can set these modes and blt without any tearing although the flags on the
surface report that it does not have a back buffer
800x600x 16 32
1024x768x 16 32

Any ideas? I feel like Im over assaulting this mailing list with questions. =)
